“We make our DDRS courses as welcoming and relaxed as possible; we're not here to patronise or point fingers. Oh - and we get Day One jitters too!’”
– Dave Llewellyn, NewLink Wales DDRS (Drink Drive Rehabilitation Scheme) Trainer
Our Drink Drive Rehabilitation Training is sometimes referred to as Alcohol Awareness Training – which says it all. It’s about education; we’re not here to patronise, judge or point the finger. We’d rather arm people with the facts and the confidence to avoid re-offending.
Our trainers know that the reasons behind drink-drive offences can be complicated and circumstantial. Sometimes it can be as simple as not being aware of the law, or missing some key bits of knowledge about how alcohol affects the brain. Often there’s other factors pushing people towards offending.
The more you understand about alcohol, and the repercussions of drink-drive offences, the better your chance of avoiding an offence in future. That’s what we’re here to help with.
As well as a reduction of up to 25% on your driving disqualification, our course offers essential info, including:
The facts on Units
What drink-driving means to your life
Drink-driving and society
Alcohol, drink culture, and you
